Old Britannia may not rule the waves any more, but as anyone who saw the Queen riding down the Thames to mark her Diamond Jubilee can attest, she sure makes like she does. We’re about to get the chance to see her at it again with the Olympics -- choreographed by that great scene-setter, Danny Boyle, hopefully bringing some of his Slumdog magic to the spectacle. Celebrate with us by popping some uncommonly good English bubbly, donning some classic threads, and serving some impeccably brewed tea in the correct china.
